Ross University Students Returning

St Kitts and Nevis (WINN): Some 125 students of Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine are scheduled to return to the Federation on Wednesday, on a charter flight.

According to a government information service release, St Kitts and Nevis is happy to welcome the select group of students about to return to the campus in Basseterre.

Their return is expected to complete a vital part of their education before entering the veterinary profession.

The University is said to have developed a robust plan for the return that includes pre-screening for signs of COVID-19.

The students will be tested for the virus immediately before returning to the Federation and again upon arrival, and are to commence a two-week quarantine period in on campus housing on arrival.

Students will reportedly be tested for a third time at the end of quarantine.

According to the authorities, they will maintain social distancing guidelines and utilize personal protective equipment (PPE) once in-person instruction begins.

University Dean Sean Callanan says in present times Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine faculty, staff, and students are partnering with the Government of St Kitts and Nevis to ensure the safety of all.

He says too that the students are looking forward to returning to the Federation to continue their studies in a way that is safe for all community members.
